Ever worked in a Pizza restaurant with freaky-looking Animatronic mascots? You won't after this game.
Five Nights at Freddy's.

Came out on steam two days ago, among other places. Hope you can manage your power usage.

The most basic RTS you will ever see (and might even play)

Great. No doors this time. This can't end well.

Five Nights at Freddy's 3 Trailer. For the third game in the series. Presumably this is the last part, but you never know.

Oh........fuck. Looking forward to this one.

Also, teaser pictures below:

And to think that this is developed by an indie developer who made Bible-based games.

None of those games are scary or compelling at all. They're all just boring jump-scare-ridden titles with no worthy production value or redeeming qualities that I can divine.

Spoken like a true YouTube casual.

For what they're worth, the games have no replay value and cost about as much as a theater ticket, and one's expectations should be based as such. They rely on the player learning the mechanics as they go. Once they learn everything there is to be learned, it becomes more algorithmic than anything else and yes, it loses the horror value at that point (the original FNAF's night 7 is very guilty of this). But that's why you don't read or watch anything about the game before playing it.

FNAF2 is a fair spike in difficulty, both because wearing the mask prevents you from doing anything else and because of the sheer amount of shit you have to look out for. I have to get around to finishing the sequel sometime, but night 2 was already more stressful than anything out of the original.

Though I'm a bit disturbed by how fast this guy is churning these out. I think I'd rather see him try something new.

He did initially intend for the second FNAF to be released this year as opposed to november last year, but there were problems he had with the demo (or something; I only learned of this through Markiplier's play through).

Admittedly, they do lose their scare value, which is sad. Still fun to watch some new fellow play the game for the first time and watch them squirm in response, if you wanted a silver lining.

If there was anything that could be improved with this series, it would involve being able to move around the building and more places to hide.

For bonus info, the developer of the games, Scott Cawthon, is christian and makes his games as bloodless as possible. That, and he got the idea for this one from one guy commenting on a beaver character in one of his games being more creepy than cute (he took that as a dare that he could make a beaver scary).

Just came across this whilst randomly browsing into Kingdom Hearts stuff on a whim. It's trailer #3 for Kingdom Hearts 3 from E3 2015.

And even though it's technically old news (by today's current date), but holy crap was I impressed thus far.

Something to look forward to. And I should get to finishing the KH HD1.5 that I got for PS3 soon. For enthusiasm purposes.

Let's just hope Nomura doesn't muck it up by too much; appreciate the silver lining if so.

Speaking of Warhammer 40k, I was surprised by how many games were licensed simultaneously this year by Games Workshop.

And just last year there was Regicide, Total War: Warhammer, Vermintide, Mordheim, and others. Like, dayum Games Workshop, you work your IPs hard.
